American Studies, Colby College (Waterville, ME)
Deadline: 
January 15, 2019
Starting Date: 
September 1, 2019
Post date: November 14, 2018

The American Studies Program at Colby College invites applications for a Faculty Fellow in Visual Culture. Ours is among the oldest American Studies undergraduate majors in the U.S. We are a small, vibrant program with close relations with the programs of Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies, African American Studies, and Cinema Studies, and the departments of Anthropology and Art. The search committee is especially interested in candidates who will participate in the dialogue between American Studies and these other programs and departments, and who, through their research, teaching, and/or service will contribute to the diversity and excellence of the campus community.

We seek candidates with Ph.D.s in American Studies or closely related fields whose scholarship and teaching focus on U.S. visual culture. The successful candidate will teach four courses, including history of photography, one core course in the major, and electives in their field. We are especially interested in applicants who teach courses in social media, new media technologies, or video gaming, and/or do work at the intersections of race, gender and sexuality. Applicants must have a strong record of teaching and scholarship, and must receive their Ph.D. no later than August 2019.

Application Instructions 

Please submit applications through Interfolio at http://apply.interfolio.com/57644. Include a cover letter, curriculum vitae, three letters of recommendation, and statements of teaching philosophy and research interests that include evidence of a commitment to the value of diversity and experience with inclusive teaching.  Applications received by January 15, 2019 will receive full consideration.  Interviews will be conducted electronically in February.  For further information contact Professor Laura Saltz, Search Committee Chair, lsaltz@colby.edu.
